Klay Thomp­son said he was “proud” of Stephen Curry af­ter his Golden State War­riors team­mate agreed to play a pro­fes­sional golf tour­na­ment, caus­ing a stir. Thomp­son said the two-time NBA MVP could fin­ish in the top 20 af­ter he ac­cepted an in­vite to play the sec­ond-tier Tour’s El­lie Mae Classic in Au­gust. “It’s re­ally cool to see Steph play­ing on the tour,” Thomp­son said. “I know he takes golf so se­ri­ously, it’s only sec­ond to bas­ket­ball for him as an ath­lete. I don’t know if he can win it be­cause he’s play­ing against some of the best play­ers in the world, but I’m root­ing for him.”
